“Chess is a kind of human activity which has room for manifestations of both intellect and the competitive spirit. But this is a bloodless competition. FIDE’s motto is Gens una sumus. And personally, I approve of only one kind of battles – the ones that take place over a board with 64 squares.”
Program for the next four years:
- Increasing the number of FIDE member countries to 205 (to include Mars and Saturn)
- Rigging more elections
- Hobnobbing with more mass murderers
- Er, that’s it.
